I take tons of photos of my kids. Like, a lot. The problem is that I never seem to do anything with said photos. They sit unprinted and unorganized on mass digital storage, and it’s a shame! So when we had some family photos taken a few weeks ago, I was determined to do something with them. Lucky for me, the timing was perfectly in time with a new promotion from Gallery Direct to turn your photos into art. I’d say that’s a mighty fine way to “do something” with one of my favorite photos.

Your Photo as Art

The process of ordering photo canvas art from Gallery Direct is really simple. You upload the photo you’d like to print and then you have several options for how to print. You can print on canvas, paper, aluminum, acrylic, mirror and even wood. I went for a pretty standard photo on gallery wrap canvas.

I chose the medium size which is 24 inches by 16 inches – and it’s a great size for our photo. It’s perfect on the wall in our front room. I just adore it! In the photo below you can see the gallery wrap effect and how the photo wraps around the sides of the canvas.

The canvas print definitely makes the photo look more like art than a simple photo. It’s a step up from traditional photo printing and framing. But, with the current discount – see below – you can get a canvas printed for the same price or less than printing and putting it in a frame! And it’s definitely less expensive than having a photo professionally framed.
